Community involvement

We are a not-for-profit organisation but we are also a Community Mutual which gives us a special structure on how we are run. Our members ‘own’ us.

When you become a member you are given a shareholder certificate. The ownership is not about a monetary share, but about being part of the work we do and the difference we make to people’s lives. It also gives you the opportunity to have a say in how we run our services and help us plan for the future.

We have called being part of us and the work we do ‘The Feeling is Mutual’. It’s all about working together using the same aims. Mutual respect. Mutual support. Mutual learning. Mutual goals.

Getting involved doesn’t mean you have to sit in meetings. You can talk to us and share your thoughts on the phone, through email or on social media. We hold events out in the community so you don’t have to travel to our office to talk to us as we come to you.

We want everyone to get involved, so we are available in evenings and weekends to make sure that everyone, even people who couldn’t join in preciously because of work or family commitments has an opportunity to have their say at times that suit them.

If you have any queries about how you can get involved and make a difference please contact us.

Five reasons to get involved!

Here are five great reasons to get involved with the work we do!

  1. You feel fantastic as you see your ideas make a difference to your community. Yes, that’s a bold statement from us but we are pretty confident that seeing the area you live in become a better place to live will make you feel happier.
  2. It takes one minute to join! Yes, it really is that easy. You can fill in your details and interests here or contact us and we will pop a form in the post.
  3. You will learn new skills and get free training (if you want to).
  4. We only ask you to help with the things that you are interested in. If you care about something you will care more about making it better.
  5. You choose how much time you want to volunteer and we will always be happy to see you.
